Welcome Back!

Spirit Wear Sale is on, Buzz Book Moves Online, Direct Donation saves us all time and money!

The school year has officially begun and there are some big things underway already!  Every Friday is spirit day at RFES, with a big spirit event monthly, and the annual spirit sale is happening now.  Find the tees and sweatshirts HERE or fill out and return the order form that came home in the red folder. This sale is happening once this year and ends 9/19, so send the orders in today. 

The school directory has moved online as a step toward greater convenience and less paper use!  It will be a huge success if we get nearly 100% participation.  This is a great, private way to identify your child's classmates for arranging playdates and parties, so register today here: join.myschoolanywhere.com!

The PTA decided some years ago to use a direct donation model of financing all the enrichment activities your child enjoys at school.  These include assemblies, educational supplies and field trips, the school store, the red folders, the parties and social events all year long and many other things - many of which might make you say "I didn't know the PTA paid for that!" 

The direct donation means you write one check to the PTA, and it funds all these enrichments all year long.  It also means you do NOT have to sell gift wrap or handbags to all your friends and neighbors to try to raise money, or deal with endless requests to purchase items or give money donations.  It is clean and simple, and works because of you and your one-time-annually donation.  Click HERE to give this year and know you did your part to support the amazing educational environment at RFES!

Thank you for all you do as members of our amazing community school and best wishes for a wonderful year!
